The trials of Mrs. Lincoln : the harrowing never-before-told story of Mary Todd Lincoln's last and finest years by Samuel Agnew Schreiner( Book )

11 editions published between 1987 and 2005 in English and held by 917 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mary Todd Lincoln (181882) was a politically ambitious, volatile, and sharp-tongued woman, a shopaholic, and an embarrassment to her son and to the powerful men who sought to control the Lincoln legacy for their own political supremacy. Slandered by former Lincoln cronies and Republican operatives, such as William Herndon, Ward Hill Lamon, and Thurlow Weed; disliked by her sons wife, the former Mary Harlan; plagued by debts, her pension grant having been denied by Congress; conspired against by her son, Robert, along with Supreme Court justice David Davis, Leonard Swett, John Todd Stuart, Isaac N. Arnold, and others, she had literally no one to turn to. This account of her final years, based on documentary evidence, sets the record straight and restores the reputation of one of the most maligned women in American political history
The Concord quartet : Alcott, Emerson, Hawthorne, Thoreau, and the friendship that freed the American mind by Samuel Agnew Schreiner( Book )

7 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and held by 737 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ralph Waldo Emerson was not happy to be heading back to Concord, Massachusetts, in the fall of 1834. Although the autumn leaves were brilliant, he could think only of his situation. Having left a job, lost both his wife and brother, and no longer able to rent suitable quarters in Boston, he was returning to the family homestead to figure out what to do next." "That day, no one would have guessed that he was starting a journey that would lead him to an American Renaissance in thought and philosophy as well as to a friendship that would span decades with three equally remarkable men and neighbors: Nathaniel Hawthorne, novelist; Henry David Thoreau, naturalist and author; and Amos Bronson Alcott, educator. As engaging as a novel, The Concord Quartet brings these nineteenth-century cultural icons to life." "Deftly interweaving the everyday dramas of the four men's lives - their marriages, children, friends, accomplishments, disappointments, illnesses, and deaths - as well as a full account of their books and the development of the transcendentalist philosophies that united them, The Concord Quartet will fascinate readers with its modern resonance, as the men struggled with ideas that still perplex people today."--Jacket
The passionate Beechers : a family saga of sanctity and scandal that changed America by Samuel Agnew Schreiner( Book )

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 521 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When Abraham Lincoln first met Harriet Beecher Stowe in the 1860s he greeted her by saying "So this is the little lady who started this big war"--Referring to her wildly popular and influential novel, Uncle Tom's Cabin, which had galvanized Northern opposition to slavery. He could have made similar comments about her brother, Henry Ward Beecher and, indeed, many of the eleven sons and daughters of the fiery Presbyterian minister and abolitionist, Lyman Beecher. In The Passionate Beechers, veteran journalist, biographer, and novelist Samuel Schreiner tells the true, larger-than-life story of the nineteenth century's most famous, influential, and controversial American family." "Revered by millions and reviled by millions more for their outspokenness, revolutionary thinking, and personal idiosyncracies, the Beechers seemed to be everywhere in American life. As Harriet's novels inspired the nation, Henry, Edward, Charles, and Thomas - all preachers - electrified their congregations with powerful sermons. Catharine crusaded for women's education, and James served as both commander and chaplain to his all-black regiment, the Thirty-fifth United States Colored Troops. The youngest daughter, Isabella, was a fiery leader of the women's suffrage movement and a spiritualist who received messages that she was related to Jesus and sent to rule the world. Virtually all of the Beechers were, like their father, accomplished writers whose ardent opinions were published in countless books, newspapers, and magazines - many of them published or edited by Beechers." "Like the Adamses before them and the Kennedys later on, the Beechers made a profound impact on American culture, an effect which can still be felt today. The Passionate Beechers tells the story of this exceptional family with an energy and enthusiasm worthy of the Beechers themselves."--Jacket

The world according to cycles : how recurring forces can predict the future and change your life by Samuel Agnew Schreiner( Book )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Like most of humankind's great theories, the cyclical view of the universe is at once elegant in its sim-plicity and utterly persuasive. Scholars, pundits, and experts in all walks of life from Carl Jung to Arthur Schlesinger and from Paul Volcker to Lee Iacocca proclaim the validity of cycles. Samuel A. Schreiner, Jr., spells out in layperson's terms how to look for patterns in unpredictable environments and how to spot the recurring forces that can predict changes in one's health, moods, and relationships, in financial investments, the weather, politics, and the state of the world. Incorporating over fifty years of research on hundreds of different cycles by scientists affiliated with the Foundation for the Study of Cycles, The World Ac-cording to Cycles enables readers to recognize many naturally recurring patterns in their daily lives. Scientists affiliated with the Foundation have correctly predicted such events as the 1987 stock market crash, a killer earthquake in Armenia, and the 1988 U.S. presidential election. The World According to Cycles will help readers develop the ability to predict a wide variety of occurrences so they can apply a greater understanding of the rhythms of everyday existence to their personal relationships, emotional well-being, employer-employee relations, and judgment and decision-making in business and finance
